I worked at Apple part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Other employees are amazing.! Great sense of teamwork and management is usually on your side and will defend you during a difficult situation. Pay and benefits are great as well.

Cons

Can be frustrating dealing with rude and upset customers. You just have to be understanding and try to see their side of the picture. Not many opportunities for growth and seems like they don't promote from within the company (at least on the retail store side).

Advice to Management

Trust your employees. They usually know what they're doing and really do have the company and customer as priorities. Also, it's important to help those employees who want to develop and grow with the company. The opportunities for growth aren't really offered to many employees.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    they pay on time and the contract is regular

    Cons

    once they put you the blue t-shirt they forget your previous experience and skills and you can forget any career in this place. You will probably remain there without opportunities. Managers are taken from other companies like jeans or shoes companies instead of letting you grow with time.
    (and you could be even and electronic engineer)

    Advice to Management

    coming from other companies like shoes or fastfood or jeans, judge by yourself
